3 Tricks To Teach Your Brittany
3 Tricks To Teach Your Brittany

To teach your Brittany tricks, even the easy ones, you should carry some tasty treats, teach him in a quiet suitable location and maintain the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Brittany will begin to get bored. Always remember when he gets something right give him lots of praise and a reward treat, just beware not to get him overly excited or he will lose focus.

Teach your Brittany to give you his paw

To get your Brittany to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. And then do it again, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to notice that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After a couple of sessions most Brittanys pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Brittany to offer you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Brittany will expect you desire to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had taught him in the prior trick. As he rises you say “high 5” and give your Brittany the treat. Once your Brittany has actually mastered the paw trick this one will likely be really easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Brittany to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not want your Brittany to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Brittany to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Brittany the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or below the hula hoop. When this happens start once again. Your Brittany desires the treat and will soon learn that going around or underneath does not get it so he will quickly start going through it. The second he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually lifted it to waist high. In case you have a smaller sized dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it more as he gets used to the trick.

I know you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Brittany. Have patience with your Brittany and most importantly, have fun!
